2 x, LP, album, reissue
"The Score" is the second and final studio album by American hip hop group The Fugees, released on February 13, 1996. The album combines elements of hip-hop, reggae, soul and R&B and is widely regarded as one of the best hip-hop albums of all time.
The album features popular singles such as "Ready or Not", "Killing Me Softly" and "Fu-Gee-La", all of which were critically acclaimed and commercially successful. "Ready or Not" samples Enya's "Boadicea", while "Killing Me Softly" is a cover of Roberta Flack's hit song.
"The Score" contains socially critical and politically charged lyrics, particularly on tracks such as "Zealots", "Family Business" and "The Beast". The Fugees cover themes such as poverty, racism and police brutality, while also touching on personal challenges and relationships.
The album was a commercial success, selling over 18 million copies worldwide and receiving several Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year. The Fugees disbanded in 1997, but "The Score" remains a landmark in hip-hop history and a must-read for fans of the genre.
